Divine domains were a specific areas of interest for deities, particularly to do with the magic and spells granted to their faithful.[1] Clerics of a particular deity choose two of the deity's domains to focus upon, and gained access to extra spells within those domains. A deity could have as many or as few domains as it pleases, although it was usual to have at least four.[2]

Some domains naturally opposed one another, such as evil and good, or chaos and law. A cleric must conformed to the alignment requirements in order to focus on these domains, even if they belonged to their deity's portfolio.[citation needed]
